Weather Code requests are being handled on a first-come, first-serve basis. We are grateful for your patience during busy times.
WBTV has automated its closing system so that organizations can log on to our website and post their closings and/or call in to an automated phone system (dial 704.374.3553). These automated methods allow you quicker reporting of your closings or delays. We still offer the option to call in and speak with someone personally; just dial 704.374.3691. If you call, please have your codes ready.
If you need a WBTV Weather Code, please click HERE. Please note, weather codes are assigned to organizations that have a minimum of 50 employees, clients, students, etc. Please submit your organization name (limit of 24 characters and spaces), county, full mailing address (including zip code), contact (one name), contact phone (one phone number), email address and website (if you have one). No phone calls, please!
As a reminder about how our system generally works: Everyone MUST have a WBTV Weather Code for posting closings and/or delays due to inclement weather. These codes should be set up in advance, so you have the code ready to use when you need it. We do not accept weather closings or delays via email, fax or web comment.
Please be patient during busy times. Your code will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis, once we receive all the necessary information.
All organizations with existing codes should continue to use them. Your code number remains the same from year to year.
If a code has been lost for whatever reason, please click HERE. To help identify you, please include all the information requested above, as if you were applying for a new code.
